Roar. (Fantastic Friday Finds)

 I love Lion Brand. Great price, great yarn, great choice of colors. Perfect for a fuss free look. So, today's Fantastic Friday Find is Lion Brand's Cotton-Ease! It's so soft and the colors are quite delicious, so I completely changed my initial plan from a silky merino blanket for my niece-to-be and bought 5 skeins of the Cotton-Ease because I'm impulsive like that.
 Went for the giant, never ending Granny Square (classic) and was thrilled with the results!
 The colors above (from ruffle edging inward) are Almond, Seaspray, Blossom, Terracotta, Maize, and back to Almond. (I want my next job to involve naming new yarns.)
 Baby Girl's not made her debut yet, and won't for a couple more months, so for now the blanket is in my clutches-- I mean, safe keeping.
 Mmm, okay, enough of that. More about the glorious Cotton-Ease!
 I was so inspired by that yarn that I wrote a pattern for it! Kind of. You see, there are granny circles all over google's search engine. The trouble is, no matter what I tried, it didn't *work*. Simply refused. So I took a little from this one, a little from that one, and combined some of my own brain-power and...
 ...voila! A rug. This "Ruffled Granny Rug" pattern will also be available in my Etsy shop (if I ever get around to it, lazy me.)
Thank you, Cotton-Ease, for all your yummy crochet goodness! What a fantastic find!
